    Budgie having difficulty flying short/long distances

    Charlie hates flying. He only does it when he wants to get to his cage or any of his favourite perches, he's not able to fly long/short distances in contrary to my other bird, Shiro. Is this just because of his personality or any physical problems? He's completely healthy and eating/drinking well.

    Re: Budgie having difficulty flying short/long distances

    Hi, and welcome to the community. How old is Charlie? Have you had him for awhile, or recently purchased him? If he has ever had wings clipped, it could be his wings have not grown back properly, or in some cases baby budgies who have wing clips never grow their flights back at all. This problem causes the bird to be grounded, so to speak, and the bird simply cannot gain flight. My suggestion is to take him to an avian vet for a wellness and wing check. Often times a wing expert at the vets office can balance the flights so the bird can fly better.
